Curtis was awesome. From the time he quoted the job though completion, he was true to his word. The quality of work was top notch and the cost was affordable and fair compared to other contractors. I would highly recommend him to anyone out there needing any metal fabrication or repair work.

I needed an axle welded on my sons go kart. Mack came out the same day I called him. He wasted no time assessing the situation and getting to work on it. It was a small job, but by no means an easy one. He had no problem figuring out how to get it welded on straight and true.. The weld was solid and strong.. His price was so fair I had to tip him 20 bucks just so I could sleep at night.. I would recommend this dude to anyone.. A++++

Ken has helped me with a couple of small projects at a furniture store that I manage in Evanston. He did a very nice job trimming the interior and exterior of our large plate glass windows. He was thoughtful about which finishes to use and gave us tips about how to maintain the exterior trim. Another time he responded right away, on a weekend in January, when I had an emergency with a front door that would not close. The stainless steel door needed to be cut down so that it would close over the new tile floor we had just installed. Both jobs were done well, on time, fair pricing.

Joshua replied promptly and professionally to my request for a welder. He did an outstanding job fixing my patio table, and completed the job in one day. He was polite and punctual, and he left no detail unattended. I'd recommend him without hesitation.

I would kidnap this man if it were legal. Fair, honest, knows his sh:t, happy, friendly, and seems to really enjoy his work. Our alley gate was almost ripped off of the steel hinges. I feared a huge bill. Nope.. $200. He even came back to fix my fussy complaints with joy in his heart. Helping people is what this guy seems to live for. Hard to find a contractor like Mike in Chicago these days. I am displeased with 99% of those I hire. Mike is in my top 1%. It's not easy making the grade with me. Mike does.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How many types of welding are there?

Welding is a method of fusing together two or more pieces of metal using electricity or flame. Welding is used to construct buildings, make metal sculptures, build and repair cars, make gates and furniture, and for many other practical and aesthetic uses. There are multiple types of welding. Here is an overview of the most popular methods:

  • Stick welding: Formally known as shielded metal arc welding, stick welding uses extreme heat applied at the seam of two separate metals to melt them together. A third (intermediary) metal may also be incorporated for added strength. As the metals cool, they are bonded together.
  • Metal inert gas (MIG) welding: Formally known as gas metal arc welding, MIG welding uses a tool to feed metal wire into the weld puddle while an electrical arc melts the wire, which will fuse to the base metal upon cooling.
  • Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding: Formally referred to gas tungsten arc welding, TIG welding is a similar process MIG welding, but instead of using a tool that continuously feeds metal wire into the weld puddle, the welder must hold and manually feed the stick.
  • Gas welding: A mix of flammable gas and oxygen is used to heat metal to the melting point.
  • Forge welding: Forging metal is an ancient art that involves heating two pieces of metal until they are molten, then hammering them together.

How long is welding training?

Because there are different paths to learning to weld, there’s no single timeline for welding training. Some people attend school part-time while working their current job, while others can focus full-time on their welding training courses. People interested in learning how to weld as a hobby can also take classes from professional welders, such as at KCMA & Services in Waterloo, Indiana.

Expect to take at least two years to go from welding newbie to American Welding Society Certified Welder. A junior college Certificate of Completion welding course is two semesters full-time, or 10 units of coursework. With this certificate, students are qualified for an apprenticeship or internship, rather than a full-time entry-level job. Welding apprenticeships range from 6,000 to 8,000 hours long, equalling three to four years at 2,000 hours per year. Some junior colleges, such as Cerritos College in the Los Angeles area, offer more in-depth welding programs that lead to different welding certifications, such as arc welding and tungsten gas arc welding. These take three to four semesters to complete, so you could be qualified for an entry-level job in about two years of full-time study. Alternatively, you can prepare for employment more quickly through an intensive vocational program at a trade school. For instance, Ohio’s Lincoln Electric Company offers a comprehensive program that prepares people for a welding career in just 20 weeks and 600 hours of hands-on instruction.

Where can I take welding classes?

Your options for welding classes depend on where you live and whether you’re willing to travel. Many skilled professionals offer private or group welding classes across the U.S. Some high schools offer classes for teens, but many people learn from a private trainer or in a junior college or vocational school. Students learn basic welding, machining and fabrication processes, including using gas and arc welding equipment, and qualify for an apprenticeship or internship. Other colleges as well as vocational schools have two-year associate’s degree programs that prepare you to take the welding certification exam and seek full-time employment.

How much is welding training?

The cost of welding training depends on where you take your classes and how quickly you want to complete the program. In general, junior college welding classes are the least expensive, but may take longer; trade schools offer intensive classes that lead to certification more quickly, but are more expensive. For example, Cerritos College, a junior college in Los Angeles that offers a welding training course, charges an average of $46 per unit; most of their welding certificate programs require 19 units of coursework, so cost about $875 each to complete. Pro-Weld, an on-site welding school in Idaho, offers three different welding courses. The 36-week welder fabrication and the 24-week gas tungsten arc welding courses each cost an average of $3,300, while pipe welding costs an average of $2,500 for a 24-week session or an average of $4,500 for a 52-week session. The 20-week comprehensive program at the Lincoln Electric Company in Ohio costs an average of $9,500. Many programs require students to purchase approximately $120-$200 worth of personal welding equipment in addition to textbooks or other class material fees.
